” Having traveled and worked in a number of countries has given me an understanding and appreciation for other cultures. Moreover, knowing more about my students and their learning styles, and possibly their motivation for learning English are key ingredients for creating a positive learning and teaching environment, which is key to having successes in the teaching of ESL/EFL. Looking after the students’ well- being is a priority”.
